Vasquez v. Frontier Motors, et al. – Undisclosed Prior Rental, Mechanical Defects
In the case of Vasquez v. Frontier Motors, Mr. Vasquez alleges Mid-City Motor World in Eureka, California, sold him a used 2012 Ford Explorer without properly disclosing the vehicle was a prior rental vehicle in violation of Vehicle Code section 11713(t) and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, section 260.02.
